This winter, Scottish Ballet are offering up their own tasty new treat with the world premiere of the fantastical Hansel & Gretel. This delightfully inventive, brand new Hansel & Gretel takes creative twists and turns inspired by the Grimm Brother’s famous fairy tale – and the stories and imagination of the people of Scotland, gathered from a year-long country-wide initiative called Hansel & Gretel and Me.

In Glasgow you can turn a trip to the ballet into a truly magical day out by adding an extra special Hansel and Gretel Afternoon Tea and accompanying cocktail. The beautiful Blythswood Square Hotel and Spa have created a tea menu to temp even the most jaded of palates; from spicy gingerbread men, melt in the mouth meringues to popping candy carrot cake, there’s even a mouth-watering cocktail The Woodcutter’s Wife if tea is too tame for you.
